Questions for a OB/GYN or Pediatric Surgeon?

Hello, my name is Will and I'm a grade 10 student attending the I.B Program. I understand that you specialize in the field of OB/GYN or Paediatrics. I am interested in these for a future occupation. Could I please ask you a few questions regarding your career?

What happens during a typical work day?
What do you like most and least about your work?
What skills would I need to work in your field?
How could I get started in a similar career path? Do you have any tips or strategies that could help me?
Would you say your work is very difficult?
How is the pressure and stress working as a surgeon?
Is a OB/GYN or Paediatric Surgeon the right career for me?

You don't have to answer all the questions if it isn't possible.
Also, could I get a email address or a website or any way to contact you?

Thanks for all your cooperation! :)
